FINLEY, North Dakota — A Finley woman has acknowledged that she killed her husband at their home nearly a year ago.

KFGO-AM reports 61-year-old Sherry Midstokke (MID'-shahk) pleaded guilty Wednesday to murder for the slaying of 66-year-old Lyle Midstokke.

Prosecutors say she drugged and smothered him to death last February.

Steele County State's Attorney Charlie Stock says the plea was reached with input from family members.

He says he asked that she be sentenced next month to 20 years in prison and then 10 years of supervised probation, but her attorney could ask for less time.
